Equitable Policy Workshop


The Equitable Policy Writing Workshop, facilitated by Krystle Ellis from Ellis Consulting on 1/25/23, introduced a framework for creating, adjusting, and/or dismantling outdated, inequitable organizational policies.

3 day-long workshops will expand on core policy writing concepts introduced in the 1/25 training, including:

  • Building a policymaking team
  • Optimizing the participation of policymaking partners (inclusivity and power dynamics)
  • Root Causes Analysis in policy creation and review
  • Data Equity
  • Communication strategies
  • Recognizing systemic barriers

Participants will get hands-on and immersive practice applying these core concepts with colleagues from their organization and from other local AI-funded organizations during the workshop.
